I have asked my doctors and they told me that it is fine to eat lunch meat and I have had some people that say not to because of the risk of listeria. What's your opinion?

I eat it through both my pregnancies. Unless you're eating a ton I don't see the problem

I buy a turkey breast and cut my own. Tastes much better.

I read this online how we shouldn't eat lunch meat or hot dogs. It's driving me crazy because I totally want subway! But I'm afraid to.

My mom had listeria and delivered my sister who was very sick because of it at 29 weeks so I don't risk it. Unless it's well heated.

My doctor said not to eat packaged lunch meat, but that fresh deli meat from Publix (Boars Head) is delivered daily & fine to eat, she just said if I bring it home, do not eat it after 4 days in the fridge.

I feel the same way! I've been craving Subway. But won't touch any lunch meat.

I dont think you should worry. As long as its not an everyday thing. I eat it almost all the time e specially when I was in my first and second trimester and my baby boy is fine. I'm only 36 weeks and he weighs over 7 pounds and doctors say he is EXTREMLEY healthy. I think these doctors try to scare you. I mean look at people back in the older days, they had to eat whatever they could afford and their kids are fine. And they keep changing all these rules you can't do this an you can't do that. Some if it is crap to me. But I assure that you will be fine if you want to eat subway. And they tell you not to drink pop, you can as long as you don't go over boared and drink water the tear of the day. I hope this helps :)
